    The previous owner of my latest project (an A&P, IA) solved his rattle this way. (3places)[ATTACH=CONFIG]14010[/ATTunACH]
    The wheel is not drilled. A wire tab is between the tire bead and the wheel.

    Default Drum Brake Ring

    Okay, I'm looking for some of the stored knowledge here. I have a '58 Tri-Pacer and was working on the brakes this weekend. As I disassembled the wheel from the brake drum, I have a piece that I can't understand it's application or locate in the Univair parts catalog; fig. 40 item 7A. This item is a ring that goes onto the brake drum and as best I can figure, helps keep the drum round during braking action. But nothing holds it to the drum. I'm open to ideas, answers.

    Badger, I merged your post with another thread on the subject. This comes up from time to time and there is some good information posted here. It has been said it is to disapate heat.

    Steve, Thanks for this. I wondered if this thread might be the same as what I had seen with my plane. Looks like I'll have to remove and disassemble the wheel to make some minor maintenance to the heat sink ring to the brake drum.
    Cheers.

    There is an Ad here in the classifieds for some wheels for $40.
